> DESCRIPTION

“Profoundly comforting ballads about what it means to be human,” says Petri Yrjölä’s exhibition catalogue. That is precisely how this first extensive museum exhibition by Yrjölä strikes lovers of painting. These large romantic paintings, which are situated somewhere between abstract and
figurative expression, are not necessarily landscapes, even though first impressions might point in that direction. Rather, they are emotional states created by colour and light, in which we often find ourselves in the tender embrace of melancholy.
